Chancellor Thomas Keon, one assumes with the approval of President Mitch Daniels and the Purdue Board of Trustees, has decided to have another Purdue Regional Campus in Oman. That is in the Gulf of Arabia for those who wonder. Why is Indiana supporting another regional campus in Oman? Maybe they do not know what to do with your money?
For anyone who has any doubt read the message from Bayan's College current Chancellor Thomas Keon:
This is Bayan College's home page's specific quote stating that they are an extension of Purdue University: "Bayan College is affiliated with Purdue University - Calumet, Indiana, USA. It offers diplomas and Bachelor's degrees here in Oman in accordance with the Purdue University system."
How many of you thought PUC was really trying to get students fron NWI, or Purdue University wanted in state students? That was all a figment of someone's imagination. Remember that Purdue in West Lafayette is only about half in-state Hoosier students. Why are you paying all this money as a Hoosier taxpayer? When will Indiana's Governor Mike Pence be sufficiently embarrassed to start looking at what is being done with billions of dollars of Hoosier taxpayer money every single year.
There is talk of Governor Mike Pence runing for President of the United States. There is also talk of Purdue University's President Mitch Daniels running for the same job. It will not happen because this waste, among many, will not be forgiven.
